My name is Christina Ragusin and I am the independant owner and principal photographer of LilyBelle Photography (formerly Bella Photography Studio), based in the Chicagoland area. I offer wedding photography as well as portrait photography for families, maternity, kids, babies, etc. My style leans heavily toward the photojournalistic side. I love studio portrait photography as well, but I tend to do my best work when I am capturing life as it is being played out. I love to anticipate expressions and actions and bring them from life to memory. We are very visual creatures and without photographs, memories will fade without being given the chance for recollection. So, that is my goal in life; to capture the memories of life for the recollection of generations to come. If you would like to view my portfolio, my blog, see my available dates, or more information, please visit my website, www.lilybellephoto.com. Thank you! Read less

The most awesome photographer ever! She has awesome package deals that are worth the money! She is professional, organized and will get the job done! She took all the pictures we wanted and then some...She lives in Steger IL but came to us for our consultation (we live in Joliet IL-45 mins away) with all of her book samples etc.....She also came to out by us for our engagement photos....You get quality time, photos and product (books, magnets etc) for your money! Christina is the owner and is serious about her work, but she is personable, funny and a hard worker.....You won't be sorry!

Christina did an excellent job! She was very professional, but at the same time made me and the rest of the bridal party feel very comfortable!! When my husband and I took engagement pictures, she made it lots of fun and my husband even ended up saying it felt more like a date than a engagement photo session :) Her photos turned out GREAT and I had so many compliments on how great the pictures turned out! The day of the wedding she was very flexible and used suggestions from the bridal party about different pictures to take and she made the whole day lots of fun for everyone! I would highly recommend her to any bride!

Wow! Just look at her site for a sample of the amazing photos Christina does! My husband & I were over the top satisfied with the very personalized service provided. She even went the extra mile and got onto Skype to chat with us as we planned our wedding from over seas!! You will not be disappointed.

Wow, is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Christina!! She captured the most precious moments on the day of our wedding. Me and my Husband love every single picture. She did such a great job, not only where her pictures amazing but she is so easy to work with!! I loved that the day of the wedding she had so many cute tricks to help out with little details, like showing my Maid of Honor a trick on how to fluff my train. Little things that I would have never thought of that just made everything better. I couldn't of asked for a better photographer, and look forward to using her again in the future for other big events.

Christina did an AMAZING job on our wedding photos - we couldn't be happier! We had a hard time finding a photographer when we first started planning the wedding, but Christina put us at ease immediately and we knew we wouldn't have to worry about photography from that point on. On the big day, she stayed with us the whole time and really captured the entire event. We've recevied many compliments from family and friends on quality of the pictures and how she always seemed to be in the right place when something memorable was happening! We're so lucky to have found her - we'll definitely be calling her again when it's time for baby photos! Thank you Christina!!

Christina did a FABULOUS job with my wedding photos! She had so many great ideas and produced some of the best pictures I have ever seen!!! The best part about her was her patience! Being a bride on your wedding day is not exactly a walk in the park...she never became discouraged or annoyed with the chaos! I would most definitely recommend Bella Photography to all future brides.

After months of looking for a photographer we could afford, I was so excited to find Christina. Any time I had any questions she was quick to respond. It was important to us to be able to get copyright to our pictures, and I was amazed at how little she charged for the CD. The day of the wedding she was with me the whole day, until almost midnight, taking pictures. I can't thank her enough.
